DDM4®V11® SLW (Mil Spec +®)

The Daniel Defense M4 Carbine V11 SLW is one of the lightest, fastest-handling rifles available in the DDM4 line-up.  Built around a Cold Hammer Forged, 14.5” Lightweight profile barrel, the V11 SLW has an Extended Flash Suppressor which is pinned and welded to reach the NFA required 16” minimum barrel length.  The Mid-length gas system provides smooth and reliable cycling under any conditions and reduces both perceived recoil and wear on moving parts.  A free-floating SLiM Rail 12.0 handguard offers incredible weight savings as well as superior cooling, ergonomics, and modularity while maintaining the strength and durability expected from Daniel Defense.  With the KeyMod attachment at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock and an uninterrupted 1913 Picatinny rail on top, the V11SLW has plenty of room for the sights, optics, and accessories the operator may require.  The rifle is finished off with the rugged and comfortable Daniel Defense Buttstock and Pistol grip.  This rifle is finished in Daniel Defense Mil Spec + Cerakote.

Most reliable all the way around rifle i have bought
Review by Chuck / (Posted on 4/17/2018)
From flash hider too trigger this thing is pure quality.
This rifle screams quality right out of the case. I’ve had it for about 3 months and put around 1,000 rounds through it...not a single malfunction! Very light, durable and accurate! Absolutely in love with it.

If You Only Have One Chance to Buy, Make it Daniel Defense.
I bought my rifle in early 2016. With "Killary" running for POTUS, and the then hostile political climate towards the 2nd Amendment, I knew this might be my only chance to get an AR-15. The pressure was on to get it right the first time. I spent close to two months researching numerous manufacturers and reading countless reviews. I researched barrels, feedramps, direct impingement vs gas piston , twist rate, etc. You name it, I focused on it. After hours and hours of research and comparisons, I finally settled on the DDM4V11. I waited a year to write my review, so that I could really run it through its paces. Quite simply put, this rifle performs flawlessly! Accurate out of the box, and versital enough to accommodate almost any type of shooter, this is the rifle to get! If the sticker price shocks you, just remember, "You get what you pay for." And in this case, you get the best!

Love it!!
I love my SLW. Once you get past the price tag, the rifle is great. I finally got mine and have been enjoying it immensely. I'm also looking forward towards purchasing another one or three!!!
Review by my5kids / (Posted on 8/23/2016)
Excellent rifle. Great fit and finish. No issues so far. One thing I did notice is that it heats up pretty fast(30 rds/min rate @ 60 rounds) compared to other rifles I've shot. I don't know if its due to the rail (previous rifles had GI style hand guards). Still satisfied though, just 200 rounds through it. Looking forward to your other products and future accessories.

Daniel Defense changed my mind on ARs and brought me back to admire them. This rifle is super light weight, well balanced and 100% reliable.

Best gun made
One of the best guns I've bought! Highly recommend to anyone wanting an ar-15. Absolutely love it
Review by Fireman2026 / (Posted on 5/22/2016)
Great value for a top end AR15
GREATEST mid length DI I ever shot! The finish is not too desirable. Functionality and reliability are among the best up there!

I've had this rifle for over a year now, and use it at various training venues and classes I teach. Highly recommended! Thinking very seriously about a Daniel Defense factory SBR next!
